Elias (knee) had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Tuesday and there is no timetable for his return, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Elias had not played in a game since Dec. 19 prior to undergoing the knee surgery. The 39-year-old Czech veteran had tallied one goal and four assists in 13 contests for New Jersey this season. More information on an expected return date for Elias will likely come out in the near future.
Elias (knee) isn't ready to return yet and will be held out for "a little bit," Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. The 39-year old has missed the Devil's last three games, and has missed 23 of 36 games overall. It seems as though New Jersey will keep Elias out of the lineup for as long as it takes in order to ensure that he will not suffer another setback to his knee upon returning.
Elias (knee) is out for Saturday's tilt with the Hurricanes. Age has seemingly caught up with Elias, as this is the second stretch of 2015-16 that he has missed with knee problems. Elias has not been very effective when he has played though, recording just five points in 13 games. The 39-year old's next opportunity to get back in to the lineup will be Tuesday against Carolina.
Contrary to earlier reports, Elias is dealing with a knee injury and will not play Tuesday night against the Red Wings. Previous reports indicated that Elias would play, but evidently the team has decided to keep him out for the road contest. Elias missed Sunday's game against the Bruins for what was deemed a "maintenance day," but it's been announced that he's actually dealing with a knee ailment. At any rate, he'll have until Dec. 26 to get healthy before the Devils would have to play their next game.
Elias took a maintenance day Sunday which prevented him from facing Boston, but Devils coach John Hynes said the winger will play Tuesday night versus the Red Wings, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Between the maintenance day and an upcoming holiday break that gives the Devils three straight days off, Elias is getting some much-needed rest for his 39-year-old body. With his season starting late due to a knee injury, Elias has one goal and four assists through 13 games.
